    Has no one seen the OC? Seth Cohen? He's called by his last name throughout the entire show, and I am sure that popularized it as a first name in the US. I realize it's a character and it's the last name, but they use it as a nickname. I don't mean to offend anyone but it's really high up on the popularity charts and I really don't think anyone using it is trying to offend any religious groups. It's just a name- there are WAY more offensive things out there.

    I live in New Zealand and we don't have a big jewish population here - i'm sure they're around but I personally have never actually met anyone who is jewish. Therefore, I have ZERO clue why the name would be considered offensive, and I actually really like the name. Maybe a small group would find it offensive, but is that reason to change your sons name - not in my opinion no.

    Exactly my thoughts !! Dont change your son's name . If you look in the charts Cohen is rising so iam not the only one who doesnt find that name offensive .

    Its ok, its quite popular sure some people will be offended but what can you do you can't please everyone and your son is already older. As a nickname maybe Owen?

    "You can't please everyone so just use a name that's offensive/not okay to a group of people that has a history of being oppressed."

    What? Ignorance is bliss, isn't it?
